The collaboration combines the power of OKX's global reach, extensive brand partnerships and growing Web3 ecosystem, including the OKX Wallet, with Tribeca Festival's renowned creative network, to unlock new opportunities, break barriers, and increase equity for creators through technological innovations, such as cryptocurrency, Web3, and the metaverse.

In addition, OKX Chief Marketing Officer Haider Rafique, McLaren Racing Chief Executive Officer Zak Brown, and McLaren F1 Driver Lando Norris will participate in a panel on June 13 at the Tribeca Festival titled, "Need for Speed: How Technology Powers Change in Sports, Movies, and Crypto."

Rafique will also deliver a speech on the growing importance of marketing and brand storytelling in the cryptocurrency space as OKX doubles down on Web3 innovation, global partnerships, and growth in new markets while others in the industry scale back.

Throughout the Festival, OKX will outline its view of how Web3 can empower creators, including through the use of its Tribeca Festival NFT pass and by providing attendees with access to a Games & Immersive Experience lounge.

Tribeca Enterprises Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Jane Rosenthal said: "Web3 technology is transforming the way we create and consume, from how art & entertainment is funded to how it is experienced. Now in year two, our partnership with OKX showcases how Tribeca Festival is weaving technology into culture and the creator economy. As we further our collaboration with OKX, we look forward to uncovering new creative avenues made possible by emerging technologies."

OKX Chief Marketing Officer Haider Rafique said: "We believe that Web3 technology can foster, protect and empower creators in the years ahead. Tribeca Festival is more than a red carpet event - it's a chance for creators to come together and discuss the future of arts, culture and entertainment. Web3 is inseparable from this discussion, and at OKX we are committed to developing the tools for everyone to become a creator in thMarkHi Mark,MarkHi Mark,is brave new world."
